    A friend of mine pubished a football book - fun read

    He's a UCD fan, a tiny amateur university club in Ireland. They qualified for the Europa League via an unlikely route while getting relegated, and in spite of being probably objectively the worst team in the competition, they actually won a round. Kevin went to all the games, spoke with the...

    Reporting Posts

    It seems that some forum members struggle to tell the "reply" button from the "report" button. I would have thought this was obvious enough that a heavily sedated monkey could tell them apart, but it seems not. The "reply" button lets you post a reply to a message. It is on the right. The...
